Christmas Gifts for Ukulele Players: How To Play Ukulele eBooks

You’re still looking on the net for Christmas presents this late? You are screwed. Unless… The big advantage with ebooks is that they’re delivered straight away (unless you pay be echeck – slogan: “Do you miss the hassle of real-world checks?”) and you can send them to anyone, anywhere instantly. In my opinion, the best […]

Friend of Uke Hunt, IanB has set up a new ukulele site Uke Thingy. There’s a pleasing variety of tab there already stretching from YES to The Road to Eldorado via Van Morrison and Frampton.

The Pogues – Fairytale of New York

The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York (Chords) One of the joys of Christmas is that Shane MacGowan is on the radio and TV as often as he should be the whole year round. Since the BBC has decided that the words ‘faggot’ and ‘slut’ are perfectly fine and it looks like […]

The Ramones – Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight) (Chords) Helen Love’s cover of The Ramones’ Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight) is the sound of Christmas as far as I’m concerned. You can download it at Filthy Little Angels. You’ll have to hunt for it on there but it’s well worth it. […]

Christmas Gifts for Ukulele Players: CDs

Beirut – Flying Club Cup Beirut – Sunday Smile (mp3) via their website Beirut are hugely popular with hipsters and college kids. Whichever record exec focus-grouped the idea and found out that brass band waltzes and ukuleles were what the youngsters wanted deserves a raise. You can check out the songs at where the […]

Christmas Ukulele: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (Chords) This is one of my all time favourite Christmas songs. A huge number of people have done this song but my favourites are Coldplay’s (in the video) and Patsy Monteleone’s version on MUD. The chords in my version are loosely based on Patsy’s version – and, gosh, there […]
